The Galapagos Islands farm has 7 hectares, it is located in the highlands of the San Cristobal island site belongs to three brothers, where there is still native vegetation. The remaining native highland forests on the populated islands are quite limited due to farming activities in general, and the introduction of useful, but very invasive, species from the mainland therefore the farm is trying to conserve their native vegetation and reverse the negative effects of invasive or introduced species, restoring the native and endemic forests !
